Environmental Impact Statement on display for community feedback

09 November 2022

The NSW Government is encouraging communities to have their say on the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for Parramatta Light Rail Stage 2 to help shape the final design for this once-in-a-generation transport project.

The EIS is open for comment until Wednesday 7 December 2022.

The public exhibition of the EIS provides the perfect opportunity for the community to learn more about the project and provide feedback.

The Parramatta Light Rail extension will link Stage 1 and the Parramatta CBD with the entertainment and sport precinct of Sydney Olympic Park, delivering a much-needed public transport solution to connect Greater Parramatta to the Olympic Peninsula.

Stage 2 will provide services approximately every 7.5 minutes between 7am and 7pm on weekdays and 14 fully accessible stops over a 10-kilometre two-way track. There will be an 8.5-kilometre walking and bike-riding path parallel to the light rail corridor linking to the existing network.

Following planning approval, construction on Stage 2 will start with enabling works and delivery of the bridge across the Parramatta River between Melrose Park and Wentworth Point.

There will be several opportunities to hear more about the proposal through face-to-face information sessions or via a virtual engagement room.

Visit Parramatta Light Rail Stage 2 virtual engagement room to learn more. Submissions for the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) have now closed.

For details about information sessions see our Meet the Team page.

More information about Stage 2 can be found in the Project Overview.
